Colbert sings ‘Islands in the Stream’ with Kenny Rogers

Published

Stephen Colbert took a break from his Comedy Central show on Tuesday to guest host ABC’s Good Morning America and performed a duet with country star Kenny Rogers while he was there.

“The fact that I’m going to sing a duet with Stephen Colbert just really wraps up my life,” the 74-year-old Rogers said before taking the microphone to sing his hit number one song “Islands in the Stream,” which he originally performed with Dolly Parton.

“Islands in the stream / That is what we are / No one in-between / How can we be wrong / Sail away with me to another world / And we rely on each other, ah-ah / From one lover to another, ah-ah.”

“What an honor to play Dolly Parton to your Kenny Rogers,” Colbert said after the a capella performance.

Rogers noted that he was disappointed that People Magazine had included Colbert in their “100 Sexy Men in One Minute” video online in 2011 and was also selected as one of the top sexy “men with glasses” in 2007. (He was also voted Maxim‘s 69th hottest woman in America in 2012, but that’s a different story.)

“You’re the sexiest grandpa,” Colbert replied. “Do you have grandchildren?”

“No, but I do have couple boys who are eight years old,” Rogers explained.

“You do?” Colbert exclaimed. “You got some lead in the pencil, man.”

WATCH: Trump lawyer Pam Bondi brushes off her meeting with Lev Parnas during NBC grilling

Published

During an interview with NBC News' "Today" on Saturday, Pam Bondi, the former attorney general of Florida and one of the lawyers representing President Donald Trump in impeachment matters, dismissed the photograph released by House Democrats that shows her with indicted Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas.

"Clearly, Lev Parnas liked to take pictures with a lot of people," said Bondi unconcernedly. "He showed up at events pretty much everywhere where Republicans were."

Asked about Trump's relationship with Parnas, she added, "I don't know what that matters, what they're planning on doing with it. We're going to stick to the facts and stick to the law in this case."

Lev Parnas ran to Maddow over fear Justice Department officials would bury Bill Barr allegations: ex-prosecutor

Published

Appearing on MSNBC's "AM Joy," a former prosecutor speculated that indicted Lev Parnas -- who has leveled a stunning amount of accusations against President Donald Trump and senior administration officials --- likely agreed to speak candidly with MSNBC's Rachel Maddow because he fears for his life and felt Attorney General Bill Barr couldn't be trusted.

Addressing the interview that drew record viewership for Maddow's evening show, former prosecutor and current MSNBC legal analyst Glenn Kirschner said Parnas likely had good reason to worry about how his own case is going.

"I'm quite sure SDNY prosecutors have sat down and gotten all this information. some of the information we now know they must have gotten was what Lev Parnas told Rachel," Kirschner explained. "Bill Barr is in on the dirty Ukranian deal."

MSNBC panel bursts out laughing after watching clip of Alan Dershowitz explaining his Trump defense strategy

Published

on

On MSNBC Saturday, a panel of legal experts tore into former Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz's argument that abuse of power is not an impeachable offense, which anchor Joy Reid played for them in a clip.

"You cannot make any sense out of it. It is an absurd comment," said former federal prosecutor Jill Wine-Banks, to laughter around the table. "It is the standard by which we have impeached in the past. If you listen to the witnesses at the House, three out of four said that is an impeachable offense. The articles against Richard Nixon included abuse of power. It is clearly what was intended by our framers. It's what the Federalist Papers say, and it's the thing that makes sense. Other high crimes and misdemeanors are exactly that. It isn't under the federal statutes that they were talking about. Bribery isn't under the federal statute because there was no federal bribery crime when the Constitution was passed. It was whatever people thought it was."
